A new year full of new ways to teach art! I hope to turn the students into storytellers with Visual Art Journaling. I love the journal idea because it helps students explore the social and emotional learning aspects of art. 

In Lower School we are reading stories and drawing our own stories inside our art journals. I think “Rock What Ya Got” was my favorite book so far, and also my motto this year :) We just have to rock it!

We are always looking at the principles of design and the elements of art: lines, shapes, pattern, proportions, balance etc.  I hope the day will soon come soon when we will be able to be messy and paint together again.

In Upper School students are creating mixed-media art work while learning about balance, rhythm and freeform shapes. We do lettering, painting and even collage.  I love that we will be able to see the progress we are making while flipping through our journal!
